In the first part of this session, we'll explore how the iPad can be integrated into a law practice and discuss security, infrastructure and compatibility. In the second part of this session, we'll go into "app-overload" and cover legal apps, note-taking apps, signature apps, PDF apps, office apps and even some fun apps.

One Hour Legal Workflows: Today and Tomorrow
Sponsored by:

As downturns in the global economy continue to put pressure on the legal industry, organizations implement new business models and solutions designed to drive increased efficiency in their organizations.  The advent of new technologies and the increased availability of digital legal research content provide leaders a vast array of solutions to address the issue.  Some existing technologies remain a centerpiece of legal professionals’ tasks and continue to change to meet their increasing efficiency demands.

One Hour Living in the Cloud? How Escrow Protects SaaS Investments for Application Continuity
Archived webinars are not CLE ELIGIBLE.

Sponsored by:

Companies are embracing Software as a Service (SaaS), commonly called “cloud computing,” because SaaS allows organizations to quickly deploy business-critical applications or functionality often at a fraction of the cost of licensing or developing on-premises applications. However, SaaS does not come without risk if adequate protections are not built into the subscription agreements. Considering that a SaaS solution may be hosted by unknown third parties or reliant on small, unproven vendors, it is imperative that SaaS subscribers beware and be prepared.

In addition, SaaS vendors looking to gain market traction and generate revenue need to help their prospects overcome objections to doing business by finding ways to mitigate risks and assure application continuity in the event the vendor gets acquired, goes out of business or discontinues support. In the fast-paced world of business negotiations, how do you engender trust between the buyer and the seller?

As a Legal professional, attend this session to learn how you can develop best practice strategies necessary to protect a subscriber’s investments in SaaS, while enabling the SaaS provider to instill trust with their prospects. With proper contingency planning and a well worded escrow agreement, you can guide your client through the maze of previously unanswered cloud computing questions. You can improve your business acumen, while demonstrating to your client that you have the expertise to safely guide them through the negotiations process of SaaS licensing.

Attend this session to discover how to:

  • engender trust between the buyer and seller
  • create a contingency plan for subscribers
  •  “trust but verify” when engaging in a SaaS relationship
  • optimize the subscriber-provider relationship
  • recognize the different risks between SaaS and on-premises software deployments
  • become a valued trusted advisor to your clients
